    Hey everyone..
    just got this today, and thought i'd share it with u all here. i know there have been some photo threads of this set already, but i dont think there's a feedback thread, so here it is.. if there already is, please merge..

    the box

    artwork inside the box
    [​IMG]

    and this little pack - and sticker sheet
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    that awesome awesome instruction sheet
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and the trailer

    the sword clips on the under side
    [​IMG]

    trailer attached

    and in robot mode

    just one with the BFG...
    [​IMG]

    all in all, its just a repaint, but still looks pretty badass and awesome.. some of the armor parts took more force to fit into, but i think thats coz the nemesis figure itself was slightly ill-fitting.. especially the waist part.. which fit very easily on my magnus figure.. but once fit, its very tight and solid.. no complaints on QC for me, highly recommended upgrade kit

    picture request - henkei prime in SC armor
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    i think someone requested for battle pics with city commander.. i took em anyway :D

    Good review man, thanks for putting that up! Is Shadow Commander actually a good guy in the comic manual? Also, can you post pics of Classics Prime in the armor? Not sure if I will pick up Nemesis Prime but I may pick up the armor.

    Oh man now I want one and I just got the Magnus armor.This is the year I go into the poorhouse.I still can't figure out if I put the Arm armor on right with my City Commander,because his hand are to the side and the arms bend the wrong way.

    nemesis prime seems to be the bad guy in the comic, to me.. depends on which side u look at it.. its very dark n all, so looks very bad-guy :D  sure i'll try taking pics of classics prime with the armor, after i finish enjoying this guy :D  and bionic commando, the hands on city commander can be twisted to face correctly.. it can be very stiff but its strong, so u wont break it, just use some force.. cant think of how the arms bend the wrong way.. mind posting some pics somewhere?

    Ok thanks for pointing that out with the hands I think I figured it out now.My hands were stiff so I didn't think they moved and I was afraid of breaking them.Here I have him posed and I gave him Animated Prime's Battle Axe since it fits perfectly in his hand.Do you know how tighten up the joints for the arm?The BFG is so heavy he can't hold it up straight I just let it rest on his knee

    Hmm, Shadow Commander is a lot slicker looking than I previously though.

    Great pics.

    as requested, ive added pics of classics (henkei) prime in the SC armor..
    and i think u've done it right, bro ^^ people complain about the arms being the only part that doesnt have perfect articulation n all.. and i dont display him with the BFG coz its too heavy.. dunno how to tighten those screws either

    Thank you! Doesn't look bad, might pick up the armor, and put it on my Classics Prime, then maybe buy Nemesis Prime sometime later.

    I think you have his gun backwards in your picture.
    Here's a shot showing his gun in "Rocket Launcher" mode:

    Here's a couple shots showing his gun in "BFG" mode:

    Back to the original topic. I can't wait to get the Shadow Commander Set. I'd like to pose him next to my City Commander in an epic battle type scene. That sword is just nutso!

    I can't wait for mine to ship, either - come on, BBTS...


    And also, nice note about that rocket launcher mode - that might come in handy fic-wise.

    alpharon, ur right...i usually pose it in that rocket launcher mode.. i wasnt interested at all in the gun when i took that pic, coz its the only part of this kit that sucks, imo.. so i just popped it on and took a pic, didnt realise which way i attached it :D  and sorry, i noticed that pic is kinda blurred too.. if anyone really wants a pic of the BFG, let me know n i'll take a better one

    Mine hasn't arrived yet from ebay, but if you want to get ready then City Commander can hold one of Animated Leader Megatron's swords. The duel is coming. :D  I'll post pics if anyone wants.

    Back on topic - I am really really psyched about this. One question, in the plastic bag with the spare face, what are the little cylinder bits?

    Those are to cover the unsightly screw-holes on yr SC kit. it's optional btw but I wouldn't do that if I were you, just in case somehow any sort-of problems arises they're a bitch to take out. Just my two-cents.

    Ah thanks for the reply. I probably won't be doing it seeing as how I haven't really noticed the holes in City Commander lol. I guess it just pays to not pay attention. :D

    Thanks for the tip about Animated Leader Megtron's sword for use with City Commander. Now I'll have to see if I can score an Animated Leader Megatron. Can anyone post a pic of this by any chance?

    I was thinking about using an axe for City Commander instead for the contrast with Shadow Commander's sword. Bionic Commando posted a picture on page 1 with him holding Animated Voyager Prime's axe, but that's looking a little too big for him. I may have to try out some different axes. Again, pictures of these would be great if anyone can provide them.

    Edit: I'm sorry, this is a Shadow Commander thread. Those pictures I requested should go in the City Commander review thread.

    He is now listed as In Stock at BBTS..
    Anyone get a shipping confirmation yet? I preordered on the first day cause I missed out on CC (plus I don't have an UM). Needless to say, I am psyched to get this guy!
